Taxes are not bad, they are necessary to make sure one nation gets the financing it needs to make sure it is not just an empty shell.
I don't want to bring the debate if taxes are used wisely or not, it is not the point here.
It's just that since taxes are necessary for one's country existence, if the taxes are eluded by massive corporations in this way, the state has to make sure it gets his money from where it still can get it : the small taxpayers.
